"I hear from NBA guys all the time, scouts and GMs," USC Coach Kevin O'Neill said recently. "But people are talking more about Marcus now than they ever have." Specifically, they're talking defense, which the 6-foot-6 Johnson calls "his base" thanks to defense-minded coaches from high school through college. "I try to shut guys down," he said. Washington's Quincy Pondexter was a victim: only two points on one-for-10 shooting against Johnson. "He's got great energy," O'Neill said of Johnson. "He's got great athletic ability. He's strong. He's got length."
